Cherry Blossom Lips

he wandered wet
on damp cherry blossom paths
post-rain air sweetened
with heaviness of regrets
visions of her cherry blossom lips
mind spinning in cowardly shame
he had run from her in fear

of forever, of a kiss he knew
would seal the deal
for lips as hers weren’t part time pleasure

he knew he would be all in
with one small luscious taste
no going back, no exit

facing himself
— vulnerability’s raw heart,
the fierceness of truest love:

it would swallow him whole

the evidence of her beauty
inner and out
spoken in soft exhales
that departed her soul
inhaled by his that suckled,
drugged, in a springtime instant

forever hers
and yet never
to be hers

the path…
the path was just as pink
just as sweet
and wound endlessly,
hell
— it begged him to run

she…
she would demand
he stay
without uttering
a single syllable
from her
cherry blossom lips
